hey, no problem. Everybody that's been here for awhile knows I've been wrong once or twice.




just don't let it happen again.

Even I, the almost all knowing nap, have learned a few things hanging out here, even concerning electrical, and I am actually a pro electrician.

make sure you have a code book, opened to the proper page, and shove that in his face.

just don't get hurt.




btw: when an apprentice proves me wrong, if I like him and he shows some respect, he gets an acknowledgement and maybe even gets to make the donut run (apprentices seem to love windshield time).

If he is a know it all jerk, I will still acknowledge the fact he was correct but then he gets the crappiest job I can find for him.

respect (usually) begats respect.
